Dan Aykroyd Confirms Bill Murray Is NOT Coming Back For Ghostbusters 3!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSad SadBill Murray


It was an inevitable reality, but it still stinks.

Ghostbusters 3 has long been delayed, mainly due to Bill Murray very vocally adamant about not wanting to participate, and now, Dan Aykroyd has come forward to confirm that his former co-star will not be returning for the third installment, but production is still a go!

He explains:

“It’s a surety that Bill Murray will not do the movie. However there is still interest from the studio. At this point it’s in suspended animation. The studio, the director Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis feel there must be a way to do it, but Bill Murray will not do the movie. He doesn’t want to be involved. He’s got six kids, houses all over America. He golfs in these tournaments where they pay him to turn up and have a laugh. He’s into this life and living it. I know we’d have a lot of fun [but] I can’t be mad at him. He’s a friend first, a colleague second.”

Ugh! Lame!

There really is no budging him, is there?

Oh well, though!

Glad it's not the end-all for this project! We'd still like to see everyone else involved in the first two come back in some capacity!

How about U??

    Too bad. Sure, it's not Shakespeare, but he could dance with one of the ones that brought him, have a reunion and a laugh with his old friends and support them. If Bill Murray signed on, I'd even go see it.

    are you kidding. he took the time to zomibieland, but he won'd do Ghostbusters 3. Bill Murray, you have to, if only for a cameo. The move will not be GB w/out him.

    Other outlets are reporting that Akroyd is saying Murray is out and the movie is OFF, not "still a go" as Perez is reporting.

    NOOOOO! We cant have a Ghostbuster movie without Dr. Venkman!!!! I hope he reconsiders for his fans sake. I know he has his own life and is probably very happy. But I miss him. How can you do a parody of Ghostbuster in Zombieland but not do the real thing!?!? PLEASE RECONSIDER!! I'll still go watch it, with or without.

    Bill Murray can't do GB3. Bill Murray is sick, and FDR will be his swan song. Dan Aykroyd's been lying for him, and that's what this cat and mouse routine has been about all along.

    BIll Murray can't do Ghostbusters 3. He's sick, and FDR is his swan song. Bill Murray has kept this under wraps, even intimidating tabloids with his legal team if a word is breathed about it. Dan Aykroyd's his freind, and has been lying for him.That's what this cat and mouse routine has been about all along.

    Re: WoodyB – Oh, no. Sincere virtual hug for Bill Murray from a random stranger if true, eh.

    He doesn't want to do this out of integrity or pride, but he'll do shameless public appearances for a buck and that zombieland crap
